The Park City Police Department and other law enforcement agencies descended on Holiday Village on Tuesday afternoon after receiving a report that someone was stabbed.

The Police Department said it received conflicting statements from people at the scene. The person who appeared initially to be the victim did not cooperate and was intoxicated, the police said.

A witness said the person’s wounds were self-inflicted, according to a statement by the Police Department. The person suffered a 1/2-inch cut to the left forearm, the police said.

The Police Department indicated the person was transported to a hospital and was sedated since he remained uncooperative.

The police said the man is approximately 30 years old and lives in Park City. He was charged with disorderly conduct and intoxication, the police said.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office, the Utah Highway Patrol and the U.S. Forest Service responded. Police caution tape was posted in a section of the Holiday Village parking lot as the investigation was ongoing.
